16 November 2014 marks the 30th Anniversary of the US theatrical release of Night of the Comet.
Night of the Comet was moderately successful upon it’s initial release, charting at number 3 in it’s first week. However, it was in the video rental and cable television market that the film really flourished, gaining a loyal following from teenagers who still count Comet in their top 10 films today.
In those 30 years, NotC has grown in popularity becoming something of a cult classic for sci-fi, horror and ’80s film fans alike. Today the film is available on both DVD and Blu-ray, and thanks to the efforts of the film’s Music Producer, Don Perry, who re-discovered original tracks, fans can listen to an all-but complete soundtrack.
